Hospice care is an invaluable service for families and individuals facing end-of-life situations. This can be an incredibly difficult time for families. The physical and emotional toll of caring for a loved can intensify exponentially.
Hospice care is provided by a team comprised of health care professionals including doctors, nurses, aids and volunteers. In addition to medical care, this team often provided psychological and spiritual support. They do their best to give families the information they need during this difficult time.
